Working with the Patrick/Murray Administration to raise awareness of water transportation services with options that accommodate the customer, Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll joined Transportation Secretary James Aloisi and MBTA General Manager Dan Grabauskas at Long Wharf Pier to introduce the monthly T pass to the Salem Ferry service.
Beginning Monday, June 8, the monthly MBTA boat pass and commuter rail pass zones 5 – 8 will be honored as valid fare on the Salem Ferry for the following weekday commuter trips: 7:00 a.m. from Salem; and the 5:10 p.m. and 7:10 p.m. from Boston’s Long Wharf. In addition, the monthly boat pass will be valid on MBTA services up to commuter rail Zone 4.
In January, MBTA operations staff met with the City of Salem to discuss improvements to transit options for MBTA passholders. A pilot program was proposed to provide North Shore ferry commuters with a seamless transition into the MBTA system; provide an added benefit to existing MBTA commuter rail passholders; and raise public awareness of water transportation services in Boston Harbor.
